Exciting Mail = My lovely new MAC lipstick :)

A few weeks ago, I entered a blog giveaway hosted by the lovely Tara at Betty's Vintage Musings. The prize was a MAC Pro Longcreme Lipcreme in a lovely vintage shade of Red. I was so pleased a few days later when Tara announced on her blog that I had won :))) Yippeee!
So, it was great to come home today, after my crappy week (see earlier Dire Domestics post!) and find that my lipstick had arrived.

Ta da! Here it is!
I have been following Tara's blog for over 6 months now, and I always enjoy her posts. Not only does she dress vintage every single day, but this lady knows her make up! The product reviews are great. And after wearing this lipstick, I can totally see why she raves about it. I have never had a MAC lipstick before (I do use their eyeshadows and pencils though), and I have to say this may have converted me. The consistancy is lovely - really rich and creamy, and didn't dry out, feather or bleed over the few hours I was wearing it.
I also love the colour, its really nice and I honestly could not have chosen better myself. So, this post is for you Tara - THANK YOU! I love it :)


  1. That does look great, mmm might have to treat myself next time I have some money!

  2. That's a good colour on you!

  3. What a great smile. You could be a model for toothpaste ads. :)

  4. That color looks AWESOME on you, Clare! I am SO HAPPY you like it! As you know, I have a tube of this as well and I have to say that I really like this much lipcreme better than MAC's original lipstick formula. The color is lush and the texture is wonderful! I also like how the color does not bleed and it's matt without being drying.

    Thank you for your compliments and "shout out" about my blog! I really appreciate it! Your blog is amazing and I have it in my bookmarks!

    Thanks again and enjoy your pretty new lippie!
